This is hardly definitive, yet highly readable, fun & also covers most of the bases, in terms of an introduction. The links to what sourced the stories, the variants, and why they arose, is very well done. I would recommend reading the sources & further information chapters immediately after reading the chapter concerning the tale itself. It has a great bibiliography section which is very informative. Would prompt further reading & understanding of the folklore itself. Not complete, but a great introduction. Those looking for a more detailed summary or chronicle best look elsewhere ( )
